Student Spotlight- April 2017

Allen

At 6-years-old, Hudson is our youngest student in our Advanced Gold Boys Gymnastics program. Advanced Gold is the highest recreational level a student can be enrolled in, so to be at this level at the age of 6, is a huge accomplishment. Hudson started his gymnastics career at the young age of two in Tiny Tots Level 2 and has been with us for the past four years! When he’s not in the gym, Hudson enjoys playing soccer. He loves coming to gymnastics because it’s tons of fun! Hudson describes his current coach Danielle as a great coach because she knows how to make gymnastics fun!

His parents chose ASI because it’s close to home and they love the coaches. Hudson’s mom believes that gymnastics is making him stronger and teaches him to work hard while having fun. We are so excited to have Hudson and his family in the gym with us as he continues to evolve in the sport!

Firewheel

We are happy to announce James as our student spotlight the month of April. James has been a student and a part of the ASI family for the past 11 years! Each week when he enters the facility, he has so much joy. His smile and laughter are contagious. The entire staff adore him and his family.

James is currently participating in our Gymmie Kids program. Mom said that they got their start at ASI because their friends attended and they had programs for both of their children.

“James has special needs, he has low muscle tone. James cannot do or has the endurance that most 15-year-old boys do. Gymnastics helps him to gain muscle strength and assists in conditioning. All the coaches James has had at ASI Firewheel has made gymnastic fun, but has worked him hard.”

Mom said, “We love that James does gymnastics. We encourage the coaches to push James. The Coaches do and make gymnastics fun. We are so happy about what James can do and his strength. He can do pull ups on the rings and bars.” James has enjoyed all the coaches he has worked with over the years.

Outside of ASI James is a very active young man. He is involved with recreational basketball and a red belt in Taekwondo (one belt away from black belt). “We love that James does gymnastics. We encourage the coaches to push James. The Coaches do and make gymnastics fun. We are so happy about what James can do and his strength. He can do pull ups on the rings and bars.”

Thank you for letting us be a part of James’ Journey!

While he also participates in Taekwondo, Ajay likes coming to gymnastics because it is fun and he loves to exercise. His parents love that Gymnastics is therapeutic for him and allows him to practice his social skills. The sensory input he receives from Gymnastics also helps him with sensory processing.
